In 1852, Isabella and her family set out on the Oregon Trail from Independence, Missouri in search of a better life. When Izzy experiences startling déjà vu and a strong premonition about their family’s journey, she knows everything is not as it seems. As all appears lost in the raging waters of the Big Blue River, Izzy is overwhelmed by a strange phenomenon. It’s the last thing she’s aware of as she closes her eyes to die.
Pawnee warrior, Kuruks, doesn’t know what to make of the half-dead young woman he finds stranded in the Nebraskan Territory with no supplies and days away from help. If this is the girl the medicine woman from his village sent him to find, he must help her. But why is she important to his tribe, and what do her disturbing dreams mean? The answers must lie in his Pawnee village, a place where Izzy could find it difficult and even dangerous to fit in.
As they begin their journey together, Izzy and Kuruks discover supernatural secrets and ancient destinies that far surpass their wildest imaginings. As they cross into dangerous and unknown realms, can Kuruks keep Izzy safe, and can they keep their growing love alive across a lifetime—and beyond?
